The Stability of Health IT in Today's Economy

There have been recent stories about jobs in the health IT industry. Despite all the instability in today's economy, the health IT sector seems to be booming. Hospitals are implementing changes and upgrading their systems. Information systems and technology have become integral parts of the healthcare infrastructure. More and more clinics and hospitals are becoming "digitized" and entering the digital world of electronic medical/health records (EMR/EHR). Plus, more and more patients are using personal health record (PHR) services to keep their own medical records portable and easily accessible. So, if you're considering a career change or you feel like an entrepreneur, then pursue opportunities in health care informatics (health IT, health IS/IT, EHR/PHR, etc.)
